Snyder and Goyer listen to critics too much, so Superman becomes a boyscout that saves cats from trees while educating the public about the safety of airplanes and subways. And no fight lasts longer then 30 seconds. When Superman gets knocked into walls he bounces off them.
The movie makes too big of a deal out of the destruction in Metropolis
Superman is hated by almost everyone on earth
Critics (Richard Roeper for one) continue their irrational hatred of Zack Snyder films. They pan the character development AGAIN depsite the fact most other comic book movies dont do a better job. They pan the amount of CGI AGAIN despite the fact theres similar amounts in other comic book films.
I'll agree on most but your first point. I think we don't need an a list star just a good batman. In fact that's what I prefer.
I actually have a lot of faith in Snyder and Goyer so I think they won't cave to the critics
I'm with you on many critics there. Roeper I actually emailed about his review and got a reply ( probably actually from a minion) defending his views. I've always felt for many years though critics are pretty bad at telling us whether a film was entertaining or not but they have still some impact on a film's performance.
